solea mactan cebu resort

Solea, also a Spanish word for elevated land, is a mid-range family resort in Cordova, Cebu that has started providing a beautiful getaway for locals and tourists for a year now. When I first arrived at the resort, I immediately thought that it's one of those overly expensive resorts in the region. Don't fret though, because Solea is worth it!

I've never been to a tea party. I don't even drink tea at all (except maybe iced tea) so when I got an invite for Cebu Marriott Hotel's Tea Party, I immediately wanted to join.

Second, I'm actually writing content about tea (and coffee) for my client's website so I thought it would be cool to experience what I've been reading for quite some time now.

Most of the time, I tell myself that I don't really have to go far to take interesting photos which I think is true. But as someone who loves adventures, I'm always itching to see something new. Something outside of my comfort zone!

I love colors. This explains why I rarely use black, white, gray, or anything super dark in my photos. Usually, my photos are of different hues because that's how I want them to be. In the course of my daily experimentation with photography, sometimes I get bored with the usual blue, green, or brown colors.
